"Trade Policy Reviews" analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - "key trade facts" - provides a visual overview of the WTO member's major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Bolivia.



Concluding Remarks by the Chairperson of the Trade Policy Review Body, H.E. Mr. Juan Carlos González of Colombia at the Trade Policy Review of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, 14 and 16 November 2017

This fourth Trade Policy Review of the Plurinational State of Bolivia has provided us with the opportunity to deepen our understanding of its trade and investment policies, and in particular regarding the reforms introduced since the last Review in 2005. I would like to thank the delegation from Bolivia, led by Ambassador Clarems Endara, Vice-Minister of Foreign Trade and Integration, for its constructive engagement throughout this exercise. I would also like to thank our discussant, Ambassador Francisco Lima Mena from El Salvador, for his interesting and thought-provoking remarks, as well as the 28 delegations which took the floor the first day, for their active participation in this Review. Members were pleased to participate in the fourth Trade Policy Review of Bolivia, which is taking place 12 years after the previous Review.
